Tyler Glasnow improved to 5-1 in his final regular season start on Wednesday against the Mets, striking out eight over six innings while allowing just two earned runs.
Glasnow allowed just three hits and one walk. He finishes this odd 2020 campaign with a 4.08 ERA, but that doesn't highlight how well he has pitched lately. Glasnow's ERA sat at 6.00 in the middle of August, and he struck out 91 in 57 1/3 innings this year. His curveball was so filthy on Wednesday that Pete Alonso swung at a pitch that bounced a good five feet in front of the plate. Expect the 27-year-old to start one of the Rays' first two playoff games next week.
